Shu'mata Camp, Amboseli, Tanzania
Situated directly under the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro, this luxurious and rugged retreat is one of the best ways to experience the allure of Africa. A permanent camp comprised of a handful of Hemingway style tents, the installation is situated on a hill in the Masai tribal lands bordering Amboselli National Park. A stunning landscape of contrasts and stark beauty, the tents were designed and positioned to capture it all with 360 degree views of the savannah and Kilimanjaro. Positioned in a line along the ridge, there are a total of six tents that form the unique and adventurous compound.
A great homage to the legendary 1920s safari spirit, this is a passionate venture that incorporates the design talents of local artists and villagers and was inspired by the history and the owners’ love of Africa.
